Hi, I'm Ashley (she/her)
I am excited to join the Healing Spaces team under the supervision of Dr. Kezia Jackson (MO License #2016035936).
If you find yourself thinking or feeling disconnected from 'the real you,' please know that I"m here to help you process your emotions. Along with my work with children and teens, I love working with adults on topics such as identity, sexuality, and grief or loss.
Through our work together, I will provide a safe space for you to show up for yourself and begin to implement change.
THERAPY FOR PRE-TEENS AND TEENS
You are in such a unique stage in life when you are not quite sure who you are or what you want to do with your life, but you also have so much pressure from family, friends, and society at large. You are not only trying to understand who you are, but who your friends are. I get it... finding your purpose in the world can be challenging.
As a therapist, I have been trained to listen, understand, and support you through all of life's challenges. Your therapy sessions might focus on:
Understanding you and your identity
Navigating your friends and peers
Managing school and life stress
Overcoming worry and anxiety
I am dedicated to making our time together meaningful, fun, and focused on what's important to you and the values you hold.
THERAPY FOR YOUNG ADULTS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS
You are here because you want to live a healthier and happier life. You are looking for a safe and supportive space to explore your feelings, develop new (and effective!) ways to cope with stress, and feel empowered, confident, and fulfilled!
I can help you navigate these emotions and find effective solutions. I understand that every person's experience with anxiety and depression is unique. That's why we will work together to personalize our approach to fit your specific needs and goals. I believe in empowering you to take an active role in your treatment, providing you with the tools and support you need to achieve your desired outcomes.
If you're ready to take the first step towards a happier, healthier life, we're here to support you, contact us today.
Grief is a natural and inevitable response to loss. Everyone experiences grief or loss in their own way and in their own time. The mourning process often involves many difficult and complicated emotions.
As you grieve, learning to accept this new reality can be extremely painful and difficult to face on your own. I am honored to walk alongside you in this journey toward accepting and coping with your loss. Together, we will process how to manage your grief and through awareness find the comfort you long for.
I graduated from the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program at the University of Missouri, St. Louis (UMSL). Through my training and experience, I choose to implement an integrative approach to counseling. By combining Person-Centered, Narrative Therapy, and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) techniques, you receive the treatment and strategies tailored to your specific needs.
If you are looking for support during one of the hardest times of your life, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment.
